Happy Monday!! I hope the new year has been treating you well! I am currently joggling between my kick boxing/ hot yoga classes and the office. I mean after all the traveling, eating, and drinking, it’s time to get back to the routine. The past couple of weeks had been hectic. As I haven’t been sticking to my part of responsibility of updating this amazing blog, I want to thank our co-founder Titinia for her consistency!!! But many of you may have already known that beside all the traveling and food crawling I do, I have a start-up business that takes up most of my time when I’m not doing those 2 things. Luckily my mom was able to help me out with the operation of my business when I was away last Christmas.
I Love Dim Sum and it has been a tradition for every sunday morning when I went over to my grandma’s. Even while I was in the states, I would go to dim sum quite often to fulfill my cravings. And for once, I headed up to Vancouver from Seattle just for some authentic food including dim sum. Haha, so now you all know how serious I treat eating. The following three dim sum places are the ones I went most often ( yay, they are delicious and close to my neighborhood 😛 )
1. Lei Garden
love their soup of the day and Soup dumpling! Every dish was super delicate, in small portion, with great taste. love the dining environment as well.
This is my all time favorite restaurant in Beijing. When you first walked in to the restaurant, you would felt like you are back to ancient times in China, perhaps the Qing dynasty. Great ambiance, good services and excellent food! Have to visit the restaurant every time I came back to Beijing. Nothing too fancy, but every dish that they made let you feel like you are eating at home and would like to return for the same dish again. The place can be a bit noisy sometimes, but it’s great for family/ friends gathering. If you ever visit Beijing, this is the restaurant you should try.

The on going NWFW reminds me of my life in NYC a lot, and Michelle’s last blog about her food crawl reminds me of being a foodie there. Although New York has all kinds of fantastic food, whenever I’m out of idea for dinner, Japanese Food is what I get.
You hardly go wrong with Jap food, and I have discovered some of my favorite Japanese restaurants in the big apple.
Very authentic restaurant located in the midtown area. Reservation is highly recommended! Along with all the fancy naming dishes on the dinner menu, do order Box of Dreams or at least try Box of Dreams Mini.
